Why stop at a sword. It appears as if a mace, axe or 2x4 with rusty nail is legal. Better yet...what about a bow and a quiver full of arrows?O.C.G.A. Â§ 16-11-126
Carrying a concealed weapon
(a) A person commits the offense of carrying a concealed weapon when such person knowingly has or carries about his or her person, unless in an open manner and fully exposed to view, any bludgeon, metal knuckles, firearm, knife designed for the purpose of offense and defense, or any other dangerous or deadly weapon or instrument of like character outside of his or her home or place of business, except as permitted under this Code section.
Actually you are carrying a deadly weapon to a public gathering. The only reason you're not being arrested and prosecuted is because you are notifying security personel of the presence of such item and securing the item as directed by them. (which is located in subsection (d) of 16-11-127) You can bet your butt that if you remove your peace-tie while at the renfest that you could be slapped with a public gathering violation because then you would have no affirmative defense since you didn't secure the weapon as directed by the security personel.gsusnake said:Interesting note, you can carry any "historical" weapons you want to without any problems, as long as they're inspected and peace-tied, but since it's a public gathering, you can't come near it with a handgun.
As if anyone with a handgun is gonna be able to commit any kind of crime with people with 4-foot long swords walking around.
Don't lie. You know that you are going to skip the IDPA match so you guys can dress up for a Dugeons and Dragons roleplaying game this Saturday. You are only going to WalMart for some black lipstick and some tights to match your "battle gear." :lol: Gosh, you computer dorks are so predictable. :twisted:NetAdminWithGun said:Can i carry a sword? Concealed? Open?
I want to dress like a knight and go to walmart. Just wondering
Or me and YuN will go as 3 musketeers.
You call that a knife? *Draws Long Sword*
